Belfort to fight for middleweight title in Nov?

by Steven Marrocco | source:

Vitor Belfort's shoulder is on the mend, and he will be able to fight for the middleweight title in the fall, according to his manager.

Fabiano Farah, Belfort's representative, told that the fighter will not get a warm-up fight before he vies for the 185-pound belt.

"Vitor will be in absolute physical condition to return to the octagon and fight for the UFC title by November 2010," Farah wrote today in an email.

No UFC events are currently rumored for November.

White recently told reporters if Silva wins at UFC 117 vs Chael Sonnen, he will fight Belfort and then make a semi-permanent move to light heavyweight.
